Aisha Hinds Joins to Cast of Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

Posted 2017/04/18 0 0

Aisha Hinds has signed on to co-star in Legendary/Warner Bros’ upcoming sequel Godzilla: King Of The Monsters, with Michael Dougherty at the helm.


The cast of Godzilla: King of the Monsters is shaping up nicely, with Star Trek Into Darkness and Under the Dome‘s Aisha Hinds being the latest actress to sign on to co-star in the project, according to Deadline. Hinds is best known for her role as Harriet Tubman in WGN's historical Drama 'Underground'. Her other credits include the Fox series 'Shots Fired', and the HBO biopic 'All the Way'. Godzilla: King of Monsters will be her first major blockbuster film.

The cast already includes Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights) and Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel) as the parents of Millie Bobbie Brown (Stranger Things). Ken Watanabe (Inception) is expected to be the only cast member returning from the original film, while O'Shea Jackson (Straight Outta Compton) will also play an undisclosed role.

Michael Dougherty is directing the movie from a script he co-wrote with Zach Shields, who worked with him on the 2015 horror film Krampus. Production is expected to begin this summer in Atlanta, Georgia.

Plot details are being kept under lock and key, so we know next to nothing about the movie at this point. It’s the third installment in Warner Bros. and Legendary’s “MonsterVerse,” which is leading up to a Godzilla vs King Kong movie. The 2014 Godzilla movie starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, and Elizabeth Olsen, did well at the box office and with critics, earning $529 million worldwide (via Box Office Mojo) and a 74 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. 

Godzilla: King of Monsters hits theaters on March 22, 2019, with the monster mash-up Godzilla vs. Kong slated to bow the following year on May 29, 2020.

In addition to Underground, Hinds can currently be seen in Fox’s event series Shots Fired and recently co-starred opposite Bryan Cranston and Anthony Mackie in the HBO biopic All The Way. She’s repped by Greene & Associates Talent Agency and attorney Jeff Bernstein.
